Can't see carrying this much weight on a semi-float axle but SMB sold lots of vans that way. Rides nice on smooth roads, OK on rough roads, and sucks on washboard and potholes. It came with Old Man Emu front shocks and I swapped them for Fox shocks a year or two ago. It didn't make much difference. It's a 10,000 brick on leaf springs. It's never going to ride like a Caddy. Brakes are OK, but I have yet to need to do a full on panic stop in 12 years of owning it. I stay waaay back from the vehicle ahead of me. I've yet to find a "big brake" upgrade kit to fit the Dynatrac front axle. Not that I could afford it anyway.
Which van? 250 or 350?

Thanks,
Bob

We should have a contest to see who’s van is heaviest!

My SMB is about 10,500. Just registered my Sprinter, it’s a mere 5,200. Only half!

I've never been over a scale, but these door tags might be interesting to many of y'all.

The weight-limiting factor on my van is the semi-float rear axle.

Stock & Empty: 5700 pounds (6.0 gas motor).
As pictured : 7300 pounds.

Aluminum bumpers and roof rack. This van travels really well on the highway and off. Did some rock crawling to get to our camping spot (veterans day weekend), and it moved over the rocks quite nicely.

Inside we are minimalists; queen size bed, ice chest, and portable table & stoves. The way we see it, the van is just a place to sleep, why load it down with kitchen appliances that we are not going to use inside the van.

No insulation either, when its hot, we park in the shade, and since there is no insulation, after the sun sets, it cools down inside quickly. When its cold outsside, we run the engine and turn on the heater. A CO2 detector keeps us appraised of any air quality hazard. The plan is to eventually insulate but for now we are happy.

Little envious of some of the lower end responses...11,500 without food, water, and Wife. Would love to shed 1,500 lbs, but for some reason spend more time contemplating the things I feel I should add rather than what I can/should remove. I'm sure my approach would change if I had to peddle.
